Gold Winner Obladee, A Wine Bar
Silver Winner The Bicycle Thief
Bronze Winner Chives Canadian Bistro
The delightfully eclectic wine list here is the brainchild of brother-sister duo Heather and Christian Rankin. Because people come to Obladee explicitly to sample their vintages they “can get away with more obscure varieties and weirder blends,” says Heather, who is a self-professed champagne lover. But it’s not just wine connoisseurs who are welcome to partake in Bacchic revelry at Obladee; the staff is happy to navigate the uninitiated to a wine you’ll love. And even though food comes second here, these guys make some of the best charcuterie boards in the city—and know how to tailor them to your drink choice.
